SWIT’s Long(ish) Player Of The Week: UTO – Shelter For The Broken

I’ve listened to these songs over and over since the ep was released a few days ago, I’ve absorbed them, they are part of me now. I’m in a loop. I have posted the first two singles from UTO on SWIT previously – “The Beast” and “That Itch”, distinctive, quirky, sensuous and humourous pop songs,…

Larry Gogan should be spinning the discs of Ora Cogan

Ora Cogan – Darling Darling is from Ora’s new LP “Crickets”, out November 3rd, 2017 on Hand Drawn Dracula. “Darling” puts me in mind of Blue Velvet and Waylon Jennings (?!?!?!?), of dreams of summer in the dark mid-Winter, of grandfather clocks chiming somewhere far far away down the hall. The bass is to like…

Aardvarks in parks love the tunes of David Harks

David Harks – ‘Avalon’ We’ve covered David Hark’s work with both Satin Jackets and Safetalk on a number of occasions here at SWIT Towers and now David has been launched into space on his first solo mission. As you may expect, Avalon is a chilled, electronic meditation on the journey home. It’s got it all,…

The Barbiturate – Psychotic Mediator Niall of the Nine Hostages, was a prehistoric Irish king, the ancestor of the Uí Néill dynasties that dominated the northern half of Ireland from the 6th to the 10th century.

Under The Radar at SWIT here’s Ravana

Ravana – Kurd Rice In Kirkuk From Ravana here’s the superb sounds of the New Delhi underground – listen to these tunes I’ve found. (Tom, have you the loan of a pound?).Sound

I’m feeling prophetic – this will be huge by Skizzo Frenetic

Skizzo Frenetic – Time Will Tell How good is Skizzo? Well he’s good enough to crash the world famous SWIT seeker algorithms. How you may ask? Well the algorithm normally only returns 1 Super World Indie Tune at a time – but on rare occasions it can’t determine which is best and returns more than…

Just Another Snake Cult are having a hissy fit

Just Another Snake Cult – Way Over Yonder in the Minor Key The band does say “Here’s a music video from a couple years ago that was never released.” Well, never say never because it’s been released now, and isn’t is simply smashing? I have to be honest, I hadn’t heard ” Way Over Yonder…

Lester JaMarcus has only just started

Lester JaMarcus – Shovaintarydrin This is “Shovaintarydrin”, a meditative, ever-changing instrumental piece by Cape Town’s Lester JaMarcus on Mare Nostrum Records. We don’t know a lot about Lester, he’s described by Mare Nostrum as ” our moody sorcerer”, certainly, this is magical, mystical, it speaks of Oriental temples, towering rainforests, and grand cathedrals, it’s a…
